Pitchfork: Parquet Courts, Speedy Ortiz, White Fence to Release Benefit Single
Famous Class' LAMC series offers split 7" records where they ask an artist to provide an unreleased track and curate which band will appear on the B-side. All digital proceeds go to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music. Today, they've announced the next three installments in the series, which will feature new tracks from Parquet Courts, Speedy Ortiz, and White Fence.
The White Fence split is out on September 2. It features the track "Nero (Has a Lot to Think About)" and is backed by a track called "Belly Full of Blood" from Los Angeles singer/songwriter Jack Name. Listen to a preview of both tracks above.
Parquet Courts' single is out September 16, and it features the track "This is Happening Now". The B-side features a track from Brooklyn's Future Punx called "Spike Train".
The Speedy track is called "Doomsday", and it's out October 7. The B-side features "I Took it Off a Record" by Brattleboro, Vermont singer/songwriter Chris Weisman.
All of the tracks will also be available on Famous Class' Bandcamp page upon release.
